When to Get a Kia Oil Change

Changing Oil in Car

Drivers from Ypsilanti all the way to Saline, want to make sure their new or used Kia is working in the best condition possible. Which is why knowing when to get a Kia oil change and how often to change your oil is so important! Some auto mechanics recommend an oil change every 5,000 miles, but you should always check your owner’s manual for details. Most new Kia models can go between 7,500 and 10,000 miles between changes, without any trouble.

Read through LaFontaine Kia’s guide to answer the question, “What type of oil does my car need?” or “How long does an oil change take?”. We’re ready to service your vehicle today!

Kia Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Due to new technology, you can estimate a strongly suggested 7,500-10,000 mile range is how often you should be getting a Kia oil change. This will keep clean oil running through your car for your daily travels around Dexter.

If you’re driving a Kia Telluride, you may need to get an oil change more frequently than a Kia Soul oil change–it often depends on how you drive! Here are a few instances that may cause you to get a Kia oil change more often:

  • Off-roading
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing
  • Commercial use

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

If you’re asking yourself, how long does an oil change take, you’ll usually hear that it takes about an hour total at your local service department. Feel free to call us ahead at LaFontaine Kia service department to make sure you have the ideal appointment that fits in your schedule.
